Materials and tools:
- Polymer clay (white, blue and black)
- LC Microstencils Set 6
- LC Shape Plate 10
- Sandpaper (Fine)
- Liquid clay
- Texture sponge
- Pinch bail for pendants and chain
Condition white and blue polymer clay and run it through the machine at the middle settings (about 2 mm).
Run LC Microstencil with a sheet of light scrap clay through the machine several times to remove black dust from them. Then run LC Microstencil with a sheet of white clay through the machine to make a very clear texture.
Use the LC Shape Plate 10 and cut the shape from the textured white clay. Then cut the blue sheet of clay to achieve a straight edge. Place the blue clay next to white shape and slightly press against each other. Then cut the same shape from the blue part. Bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Backfill the baked shape with the black polymer clay.
Condition black clay and run it through the machine at thinner settings (about 1 mm). Then texturize the sheet with a sponge.
Turn the sheet over so that the textured surface is facing down. Apply liquid clay to the backed piece and glue it to the sheet.
Cut off the excess clay and clean the edges.
Bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Let it cool down and sand it.
Finally, finish the pendant. Drill a hole, and hang the pendant on the chain.
